“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi

The personal development programme at Laurel Park will promote and produce well rounded individuals who will be ready to thrive in a modern world. They will be:


●       role models in the local community and wider world

●       engage in opportunities outside the classroom in order to develop their characters

●       promote diversity and culture both in and outside of school

●       have access to a robust and modern curriculum, adapted to students needs and future prospects


At Key Stage 3, students build on the knowledge and understanding, skills, attributes and values they have acquired and developed during the primary phase. PSHE education acknowledges and addresses the changes that young people experience, beginning with transition to secondary school, the challenges of adolescence and their increasing independence. It teaches the knowledge and skills which will equip them for the opportunities and challenges of life. Students learn to manage diverse relationships, their online lives, and the increasing influence of peers and the media.


At Key Stage 4, students deepen knowledge and understanding, extend and rehearse skills, and further explore attitudes, values and attributes acquired during key stage 3. PSHE education reflects the fact that students are moving towards an independent role in adult life, taking on greater responsibility for themselves and others.
